Default Ship building on the Dam ships

Hey folks....why aren't you entering the ship building contests? They are a complete blast to do. I enter everytime I can. DJ Mike on the Westerdam told me that they might do away with it since no one enters. PLEASE ENTER!!!! I use this contest to help me sleep. I am wound up at the end of a day, so I work on my ship before I go to sleep. When I wake up I work on it to get me going. SO PLEASE ENTER!!! You won't regret it. It is soooooooooooooooooooooo much fun.

Trust me ... anything I built wouldn't even come close to floating. In fact, it would probably promptly sink as soon as it hit the water.

That's the fun of the contest. Build it. If it floats that's cool, if it sinks that's funny!

It is not just about floating! A grand sinking will also win applause as will a very creative ship.

Ummmmmm, then maybe I will look into participating in this activity on my next HAL cruise. ... Lord knows, I can sure provide a grand sinking ... and can probably do that with very little effort on my part.
